Pepperoni Pizza Can Be Murder (Pizza Lover's Mystery Series #2) by Chris Cavender

For once, it seems, no one is trying to pin a murder on Eleanor Swift, owner of the scrumptious pizzeria A Slice of Delight in the quiet little town of Timber Ridge, North Carolina. But someone has to answer for that body in her kitchen. . .and it looks like the final stop for Greg Hatcher, her deliveryman, may be the state penitentiary. . .

Eleanor knows Gregg would never have lethally bashed his own brother in the head with a pizza-rolling pin. Sure, Wade was greedily claiming far more than his fair share of their family inheritance. And Gregg did catch his ex-girlfriend Katy smooching on the couch with Wade. It's no wonder that Timber Ridge's police chief—and Eleanor's ex-sweetheart—has his sights set on finding and arresting poor Gregg.

But as Eleanor and her saucy sister Maddy dig a little deeper into the mystery, they find Wade's enemies begin to outnumber the slices on a large pie. This is one mystery that's made to order, and if Eleanor and Maddy don't find out who killed Wade, Gregg's delivery days are over. But while finding the killer is one thing, escaping alive to dish the goods to the police is quite another.

Includes delicious pizza recipe!

I enjoy this authors writing style but I am utterly shocked at the inconsitencies in the story, the constant repeatition adding little to no value to the story. I get mentioning characteristics about a character or have a little flashback memory to explain the past with a person a few times to build the connection with the audience... but this book is over the top repeatative on several things that really arent too difficult for a reader to grasp. Joe died. Joe restored the house. Maddy is thin. Maddy has been married many times. Eleanor does not like to be called Ellie. Kevin hurt Ellie in highschool. ...... I am 2/3's into the book, and I think one or more of the facts is on every page. The reason I stopped reading to write this review is because on around page 140, they totally used the wrong first name for a character. Not a misspelling, a 100% wrong name. Used it twice and three paragraphs down... went back to the correct name. How could an editor not catch this?? Really??? I feel like these books are sub-standard. Again, I do like this author, and enjoy the cozy mystery genre. I just feel that this series was rushed, not allowing for true developmemt of the story to occur. Using the wrong name for a character is so elementary... very dissapointed.

The first book in the series was pretty good but I thought it could have been a little bit better so thought I would give the second book in the series a try. I was disappointed. Not to give too much away about the story line, but they focus on an armed robbery and lack of a safe. A night deposit is stuck on the pizza conveyor for safe keeping over night. Well they are unable to have use of the pizzeria for a while and when they do open again, they continue with business as usual. No mention of the night deposit again. I kept waiting to hear that it was somehow tied to the murder and that the murderer had found it on the conveyor and stole that money. But that was not to be. For such an important factor in the storyline, it just dropped into nothing. Also, whoever proofed the story let things slide in some of the storyline. For instance, they refer to a character that the main character has been steadfastly defending and in a sentence state that they know he is guilty. I believe that was supposed to have said "not" guilty. These things may not bother some readers but lack of details such as these bother me.

While I like the interaction between Eleanor and her sister Maddy, and I liked the story line, I didn't like the fact that Eleanor is so rude to David when he only called to find out how she was after an incident. This just gave me a bitter taste for her in the rest of the book.
